The website section on club competitions (see the tab on the left of this section) has been updated and improved.  It includes details of how to enter and what the format is of all our competitions – please have a read of this as it will save you a lot of questions and uncertainty.

 

COMPETITIONS AT OTHER CLUBS IN 2018

We have posted a list of the competitions that other Clubs are running in 2018 on the Club noticeboards.  If you want to enter any of these, please contact the Club concerned directly.

HANDICAP REVIEW

The Committee has now conducted its annual handicap review. A number of players will shortly receive information about the change to their own handicap.  Almost all of these are generated and recommended by Handicap Master, which analyses scores for the year and makes recommendations on the basis of the totality of scores achieved. For players without current competition handicaps, we have also used their scores in the winter Stablefords to enable us to provide a handicap. If you have any queries, please contact Steve Yemm.

 

2018 CLUB CALENDAR AND DIARY

The Calendar on the website (on this page) is now updated for the whole of 2018.  Individual diairies will be sent out shortly to all Club members who have renewed their subscriptions, and should be with you by the start of February.

 

THE CLUB ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

This will take place on Tuesday March 20 at 7.30pm.  Notices inviting nominations to the Committee and/or proposals will be posted shortly. The Committee will be proposing that the Company structure of the Club be replaced by a less formal organisation, which is an important change – more details next month.

 

TRAINING DVD FOR DEFIBRILLATOR

We have decided not to purchase a specific training session on using the defibrillator, but rather to recommend that you watch the training DVD.  This will be available from the clubhouse shortly, but can also be viewed at this link - www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KIiRBcCTLM

 

SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR 2018

Subscriptions to the Club are now overdue.  Just in case you were wondering, this is what you get for your money:

  1. Affiliation to the English Golf Union, Gloucestershire Golf Union and National Association of Public Golf Courses. Through this, our members’ handicaps are officially recognised and enable you to play with a ‘live’ handicap on any course. Around two-thirds of your membership subscription is paid across in affiliation fees.
  2. Access to County Cards.  As members, we are entitled to  annual County Cards, which enable us to play at other courses, not just in Gloucestershire, for approximately half price green fees.
  3. Official handicaps and entry to club competitions. We organise a range of competitions for men, women and seniors, through which members get their competition handicaps that enable them to play with other golfers across the country.  The Master Scoreboard section of the website records all of our scores, and enables us to track our scores. 
  4. An annual presentation evening and an Annual General Meeting, at which a drink and refreshments are provided to those who attend from the subscription income.
  5. Through a Committee of volunteers, we liaise with the course owners and managers to ensure that the views of the members are taken into account in course improvements and developments.
  6. An annual calendar of events and competitions is provided to each member, so that we know what is happening when. (These will be sent out at the end of January)
  7. Members are entitled to play for Club teams – we run Mens, Ladies and Seniors teams which play a range of matches and in other competitions.
